1 Tho’ weak my faith, I’m holding on;
To Jesus I am clinging;
I feel that now the “Mighty One”
Help to my soul is bringing.

Refrain:
I’m holding on, I’m holding on,
Fresh strength each moment gaining,
My ling’ring doubts at last are gone,
And Christ within is reigning.

2 I’m holding on, tho’ Satan tries
To keep me from believing;
But, while my soul on God relies,
The blessing I’m receiving. [Refrain]

3 While holding on by faith I see
The blood of Jesus flowing;
The healing stream is touching me,
New life and peace bestowing. [Refrain]

4 I’m clinging, clinging, holding on,
My faith is rising higher,
The last remains of sin are gone;
I have my heart’s desire. [Refrain]

5 I’m holding on, and while I make
A perfect consecration,
The Holy Ghost, for Jesus’ sake,
Brings in complete salvation. [Refrain]
